Welcome to the Land of Oz and the imagination of L. Frank Baum. Welcome to The Willard Carroll Collection, a world-renowned archive of more than 30,000 Wizard of Oz items. For the first time ever, editor Linda Sunshine has collected excerpts from Baum’s fourteen Oz novels, poems, short stories, and song lyrics and married them to art from around the world, some dating as far back as 1899. Here are 352 pages of stunning illustrations (some never before published in this country) and profoundly wise text that honors the ideals of home, heart, intellect, and bravery. Be prepared for wizards, witches, winged monkeys, a hungry tiger, a rainbow fairy, the Munchkins, the Fuddles, and the beloved characters who have become cultural icons: Dorothy, Toto, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion. “In the Land of Oz, anything is possible,” Baum tells us in Ozma of Oz (1907). “For it is a wonderful fairy country.” Ever since The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was first published, we’ve been entranced with life in Oz. More than a hundred years later, All Things Oz comes to earth to reignite the imagination and offer safe passage back to the land over the rainbow. Open this book and let the journey begin.
